Hello Akif,
It may be common behaviour but it is very unusual for me and I think you have a fabulous photo here. Even though it is common behaviour then, I cannot for one moment think that this is a "common" image...I do think everything about it is fantastic!!!

Selamlar akif bey,
Harika bir zamanlamayla nefis bir çalışma olmuş.
En güzel dileklerimle hoşcakalın
İyi akşamlar.

Hi Akif,

very interesting photo portraying a birds of prey's behaviour that i didn't know and about which i'll look for more informations.The photo has an excellent focalization, the eagles are "frozen" mid-air perfectly and the details are very well visible.
